Victory Parade in Moscow; "Putin: For victory! Hooray" VIDEO/PHOTO
A large number of soldiers participate in the parade, and numerous examples of military equipment will be exhibited.
The parade is attended by the Russian top brass, led by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As a reminder, Germany's unconditional capitulation was signed in Berlin shortly after midnight on May 8, 1945, by Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, the signatory on behalf of the Soviet Union was Marshal Georgy Zhukov, and on behalf of the Western Allies, British Air Force General Arthur Tedder. This formally ended the Second World War in Europe, but the remnants of German troops and their allies continued to resist for several days, while in Yugoslavia it lasted until May 15.
